Virat Kohli, India’s captain of all sizes, took to Instagram on Wednesday to comment on her wife Anushka Sharma’s Instagram post, which features the Bollywood actor showing off her baby bump in a magazine shoot. “Wonderful,” Virat Kohli left a comment on Anushka’s post, along with a heart emoji. Virat Kohli flew back to India from Australia after the first Test Down Under, with the visitors lost by eight wickets after a dramatic batter collapse on Day 3 at the Adelaide Oval.
Kohli and Anushka are awaiting the birth of their first child and the Indian skipper has been given paternity leave from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Kohli led India to a victory in the Twenty20 International series in Australia after the visitors lost the One-Day International series 1-2.
During the ODI series, Virat Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s long-standing record and became the fastest player to hit 12,000 runs in the 50-over format.
While India’s captain ended the year without hitting a century in any format, Kohli took two highest accolades at the ICC awards of the decade.
The ICC named Virat Kohli the ODI Men’s Cricketer of the Year and he also won the Sir Garfield Sobers Prize for the ICC’s Male Cricketer of the Decade.
After taking top honors, Kohli said the awards are a recognition of the amount of hard work he has put in over the past 10 years.
Kohli was also named on ICC’s Teams of the Decade in all three formats, while the International Cricket Association named him as captain of the Test XI of the Decade.
